Hi,

I tried:

[mongo_admin://top]
index = mongodb
disabled = 0
interval = 30
commands = top ping
server = localhost
port = 27017
username = <user>
password = <password>
database = admin

with a valid username and password on the admin database, but it's giving me"

OperationFailure: not authorized on admin to execute command { top: 1 }

The other sourcetype="mongo:admin:ping" is working

In case anyone encountered this, I found the solution!

In short, YES, authentication is natively supported as this app uses pymongo. I sourced my solution from the pymongo docs here: http://api.mongodb.com/python/current/examples/authentication.html

In the host field, enter a string of this form:

mongodb://user:password@<hostname or ip>

And pymongo will handle authentication for you. If your password contains special characters, you will need to URL-Escape them. Follow the link to the pymongo docs for more details on that.

Would be nice if the app developer included this in the documentation!
